Walking in we saw wood fired ovens & a tray beautiful tomatoes. I had fresh vegetable soup with chicken & sausage. Orecchiette with beans, greens & sausage was delicious. The staff was busy as the dining room filled up quickly, even on a Monday night. We'll be back.

My family decided to go to Buon Appetito for dinner. For starters we ordered Salad and calamari for the table. Then 2 of us ordered the linguine and clams and my two daughters ordered the cheese ravioli and my husband ordered egg plant parm. The calamari came out under cooked but the waitress noticed right away and wanted to know... More

This restaurant is one off the best we have ever visited. This establishment is very clean and on the way to Foxwoods Resort. The staff are all wonderful and the service is the best. Our favorites are the Ribs entree and the Stuffed shells, both are amazing! The Owner makes the rounds to the tables to make sure that everything... More

Best bracciole I've ever had. My husband had the sea bass and we traded half way through-- equally delicious! Great service, great food!

Took a chance on this gem of a restaurant while traveling through the area on a leaf peeping ride. It was our good fortune to stumble upon Buon Appetito. The food and service were phenomenal. If you know and appreciate good quality food, this is the place for you. We had the salmon and swordfish - both meals were cooked... More

We had dinner here twice this week. One night we weren't really hungry so we just had the wood fired pizza - excellent! Last night our hotel, right across the street, lost power before dinner. We headed out in our car and saw they had power (thanks to a generator) so we stopped in again. We both had excellent meals!... More

This past September was my second visit to Buon Appetito, my first last February. Both times EVERYTHING was on point. Food, service, atmosphere, price. Everything fantastic. I work in the restaurant business and tend to be very critical of restaurants. I have nothing but raves about this place. My boyfriend and I shared the spicy sausage and cherry pepper pizza... More

Was there with a couple last night and if you like Italian food (Northern) this is the place. I had the Salmon and was one of the best I've had anywhere. Both of my friends loved the meals they had as well. Owner is present and food is sourced from the best suppliers in the area. Hats off to them... More

Disappointed from the start. Rude waitresses was fighting with a Co worker. Didn't welcome anyone...so that was a turn off. She was the most arrogant unprofessional hostess I ever met! Food was good. Service was poor. Menu was full of sauce stains. Just a nice place run completely wrong
